Question: How do i find out if my landlord filed eviction papers

Answer:

If your landlord had started an eviction against you, you should have received written notice. Eviction cases move through the court system fast. After the written notice to the tenant, the landlord begins the case by filing a summons and complaint with the court and serving it on the tenant by one of the acceptable methods. The Summons tells the tenant:

• The Date and Time of the Trial

 • The Location of the Court and Room number of the Trial

• Telephone number for People with special needs

The trial date may be only two days away. If the tenant does not go to the court on the date and time listed, and the landlord or his attorney is present, then a judgment will most likely be entered against the tenant. If you receive a Summons and Complaint, you are encouraged to seek legal assistance as soon as possible. Please visit our website for some legal aid options that may be available.

AZTurbocourt.gov is a site created by the Arizona Supreme Court and offers individuals the ability to file or respond to various actions through the site. You can also look up your case on this website under the Case Lookup link.  Depending on where a person is located, some of the forms may be available online through a superior court website or a local law library. Also, there are some links to eviction forms on this website.
